Pixar have had a few titles that haven’t really given you much clue about the movie (at least without a little more int) – Up, Ratatouille, Inside Out – but you’ve have to be a genius to hear a film was called ‘Coco’ and and immediately know it was about somebody travelling to the Mexican Land of the Dead. However, that’s what happens in Pixar’s Coco.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘Despite his family’s baffling generations-old ban on music, Miguel (voice of newcomer Anthony Gonzalez) dreams of becoming an accomplished musician like his idol, Ernesto de la Cruz (voice of Benjamin Bratt). Desperate to prove his talent, Miguel finds himself in the stunning and colorful Land of the Dead following a mysterious chain of events. Along the way, he meets charming trickster Hector (voice of Gael García Bernal), and together, they set off on an extraordinary journey to unlock the real story behind Miguel’s family history.
‘Directed by Lee Unkrich (“Toy Story 3”), co-directed by Adrian Molina (story artist “Monsters University”) and produced by Darla K. Anderson (“Toy Story 3”).’
The movie will be out in the UK on January 18th. Take a look at the new trailer below. [Read more…]
